Newtown Cultural Arts Commission is looking for new, original art that illustrates “Newtown Arts & Culture,” with the winning artist receiving $750 and the opportunity to see their work in myriad uses and locations. The winning image will be used to promote the 2014 Newtown Arts Festival and will appear in businesses and public spaces around Newtown and surrounding towns.
The image will also be printed on T-shirts, posters, and other items that will be available for purchase at next year’s arts festival.
